NYT Connections May 16 Answers

Today’s NYT Connections puzzle fell right in the area of a puzzle that is difficult but not difficult enough. Case in point was me starting out by solving the Blue category the first. As much as I hate to say this pun, it was almost like it Breezed through it.

The Yellow category came next and even though I’m someone who doesn’t take a lot of photos, I of course knew these terms. The Green category was a bit of a puzzler. Well, for the first few minutes anyway. But after double checking the word Cinch, I knew what I was looking for.

With that done, I combined the last four words together to get the Purple category and the NYT Connections puzzle for May 16!
